Having released his eighth album Xport, and solidified his spot in the DJ Magazine top 100 yet again, Yahel has carved out a place for himself in the Trance and Club scenes of Electronic music. Streaming a diverse blend of global and ethnic influences through his pulsing trademark trance groove, ‘Xport’ begins with Yahel’s uplifting interpretation on Iron Maiden’s dad metal anthem ‘Fear Of The Dark’. Yet unlike many of his compatriots, it’s not unknown for Yahel’s soaring compositions to find their way into the boxes of Ferry, Tisto, PvD and Armin, with his 2000 epic ‘Voyage’ famously snapped up by the In Trance We Trust label. As evident from his solid standing on the DJ List, Yahel’s fans worldwide consistently support him, and Yahel knows just how much that means.
Yahel is widely respected, and has found success with major labels like Sony/BMG. He has also collaborated with Konami and Namco liscensing his music for a variety of their video games. Recently Yahel released an album through England’s Aardvark Records. “We were so excited to work with a guy of Yahel’s caliber.” Says label head Andy Reeve. Some of the other labels he has been involved with are Black Hole, Cyber, Tsunami, and Fundamental (with many more to follow.)
Yahel continues to make a mark on the Worldwide trance scene with regular sets in the UK, Turkey, Brazil, Mexico, and the USA. He also transported his washing melodies to Korea for the first time this year. But for Yahel there’s still no place like home. “Most people might not see Israel as a party place but for me there’s no better place to play and party in the world, It’s a way of life for us.”
Playing all over the globe Yahel is always traveling, always working, and always making time for his fans and family. Keep checking back, 2009 is going to be huge.
